“You can’t just throw dollars at the problem. You have to invest in approaches that will actually move the needle.” Tom Martindale, coordinator of Building Bridges for the Future of Muskogee, details how that city’s five-year plan to implement Bridges and Getting Ahead is already paying off. With detailed statistics of participant successes, Martindale shows how the multi-sector movement has changed individual lives in Oklahoma. Together, those individual life changes are creating a sea change in Muskogee. Plans for further programs include a Spanish-language course and a course designed for ex-offenders reentering the community.
